A goods siding was provided in 1908, and was extended in 1950, for the nearby flour mill. Hand gates protected the Glenroy Road level crossing until 1965, when boom barriers were provided. The original station buildings were provided in 1886, being replaced by the present buildings in 1976. The station was upgraded to a Premium station in 1999. It is highly likely that the station will be rebuilt a second time within the next six years due to an election promise to remove the Glenroy Road level crossing where a rail based option will likely be chosen, forcing Glenroy station to be moved either under or over ground.
